Hearing set for suspect in policeman’s assault

Sgt. Diane Chandler was working security at the TARTA Park Station, Erie Street and Madison Avenue, on Friday morning when she told him to leave.

The man refused, and when the sergeant tried to arrest him, he resisted and allegedly punched her in the face, according to court documents. A witness helped the sergeant detain the suspect until other officers arrived.
